    Yeah, it was definitely the originals that died at the hands of The Collective, as MMLJ and PuckII were there too.

    My personal take on the temporal copies was that they ceased to exist when the originals came back to Earth.
    However there were copies of NS&A who never left the planet, so maybe present-Shaman just nullified them all upon his return.

    An alien Plodex Colonization ship heading towards Earth is damaged; As it enters the atmosphere, it releases its stockpile of Plodex Colonization Eggs, most of which are destroyed, before eventually crash landing near the Magnetic North Pole; The pre-programmed vessel sends out a signal that summons the “strongest” of the native population; Eventually, an exiled Northern tribesman makes his way to the ship, where he is captured by it and transformed into to a perfect human specimen, gaining immortality, but being trapped within the ship. The newly created “Master” then waits for the day when he will be able to make contact with one of the Plodex creatures created from the Colonization Eggs, and use that creature to break free of his prison on the ship

    Circa 8,000 BC:
